Client Testimonials

Excellent – The drawings were necessary to obtain permits for the repairs of damage caused by Hurricane Sandy. He estimated that the work would take three weeks. We requested that he try to finish as soon as possible as we needed to vacate the rented house by 10/15/2014. He finished in a week. He had to submit a clarification to the Toms River zoning department which was completed in less than an hour. There is a very good possibility that we may have our permits by the end of this week. What else can I say but he is outstanding.

My home in Ortley Beach, NJ was destroyed by Hurricane Sandy. It took some time to gather the funding to rebuild and since I was living 200 miles away, I hired my first architect that was closer to where I was living. After an extended time – five months – I had construction drawings – or so I thought. Even though the first architect was in New Jersey and should have known the codes, builders had a difficult time doing proposals, claimed they could not apply for permits with the drawings, and said they had to be redrawn. One of the builders recommended Malcolm Burton, AIA and I am very happy with the result. Malcolm redid the design, exchanged drawings via email, and worked with me over the phone via conference calls. His detailed designer was excellent and the staff put up with my changes and questions. They certainly understood the idiosyncrasies of the local building department so that there would be minimal issues when applying for permits. They were also able to do the piling foundation design, understood new and advanced construction techniques, handled all hurricane and flood design criteria, and produced a clear and complete set of drawings. The pricing was very reasonable and the professionalism was exemplary. If I ever need any architectural work in the future, Malcolm Burton, AIA would be my choice. I highly recommend this firm.

Mr. Burton was very professional, very patient, addressed my concerns as well as the structural problems of the house and translated it into the house of my dreams and had no trouble passing the township planning board.  I am very pleased with the outcome and know it is structurally sound.

It was a pleasure to work with Malcolm Burton,AIA! He was prompt, exact and very professional! Malcolm assisted us in building rooms onto my daughter’s home. The best compliment that we have heard is that the house doesn’t look as if it has been expanded! It appears to be exactly the way it should have looked when it was first built!

We were thoroughly pleased with Malcolm Burton’s designing our new house. His team’s attention to detail was impressive.

Ken and Jerilee O.

We had a top-notch experience working with Malcolm on an addition to our shore house. We started out with one strong, but very misguided idea, and Malcolm gently, but professionally turned us toward a new direction — one that has turned out beautifully and surpassed our expectations. He met every single timeline, was as concerned about costs and utility of our addition as if it were his own. If there were any more work on my drawing board, I would absolutely reach out to Malcolm.

Robin P.

Mr.Burton was the ultimate professional from my first phone contact with him through our plan design and review through his planning board appearances and the ultimate completion of our project. There wasn’t a detail missed or glitch solved. It is rare to find people as competent and easy to work with as Malcolm. I deal with design professionals and contractors in five states in my line of work and wish they all were as good !
I wouldn’t hesitate for a moment in recommending his services.

John F.

Malcolm Burton was very professional.  He was very helpful, giving us ideas and choices we could make. Whenever we had a question or a problem he responded quickly.  He was always available and accommodating.  We highly recommend him.

I found Malcolm by searching the internet after Hurricane Sandy.  I didn’t have any references on Malcolm prior to working with him and was really pleased that I found a top notch architect (lucky as well!!).  Malcolm was a pleasure to work with.  He is incredibly thorough and worked with us through each step of the design process.  He was a wealth of knowledge and information and helped to guide us to make the best decisions understanding the goals, budget and timelines of our project.  Needless to say, the days and months after Sandy were a bit chaotic in trying to figure out what was and was not allowable with respect to reconstruction was difficult.  Malcolm was able to provide us with a sense of clarity and comfort as we made the decisions required to get our project off the ground.   I would highly recommend Malcolm and trust him to bring the same level of professionalism and expertise to others that he brought to us.

So much to say in response to the latest drawings.  My response to the bedroom wing is very positive.  Rich is extremely enthusiastic about what you’ve done with the wing in the library.  Please use us as a reference with potential clients.  You are amazing.
